Talk:Thuringwethil

[edit] Image change

I propose this one, by Tolrone. --IvarTheBoneless

do you always want an image you uploaded.
No, but it is the most representative of the bunch (the one by Ted Nasmith is great, but it isn't technically Thuringwethil - it's Lúthien disguised as Thuringwethil). Also, if I didn't think the image was any good, I wouldn't have uploaded it in the first place. --IvarTheBoneless
It looks nice but I prefer the one from Kimberly. Bare in mind Tolkien's vampires are just giant bats. Gaetano 08:28, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
Well, to be fair, Kimberly's Thuringwethil isn't a giant bat either. --IvarTheBoneless
That is her other form. Gaetano 09:58, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
What is your source for that? Because I can't remember any instance in either "The Silmarillion" or the "HoME" that describes her in a humanoid form. --IvarTheBoneless
Thuringwethil 'Woman of Secret Shadow', the messenger of Sauron from Tol-in-Gaurhoth who took the form of a great bat, and in whose shape Lúthien entered Angband.
The Silmarillion, Index of Names
Again that is Kimberly's interpretation of Thuringwethil, there is not much information to go about her description, she could have a beautiful or monstrous visage. Gaetano 11:10, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
Fair enough. Though I still prefer the one by Tolrone, simply because it combines a shape of a giant bat with the face of a woman. --IvarTheBoneless
I think both are quite good, but I choose Toltone's: the character only exists to give Lúthien a vampire custome, and Toltone's depiction shows that aspect much better. --LorenzoCB 11:42, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
I prefer the new image too, the current one is too vague. Sage 14:15, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
I concur. Holdwine Meriadoc (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:23, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
Done. --LorenzoCB 15:33, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
